This is the ninth in a weekly series where I, Jonathan Frakes, ask the Drowned In Sound community questions taken from the show Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction which I hosted from 1998 - 2002.
Do you have a pet?
- I used to, but not anymore
- No, never
Tell me about your pets, or pets from days gone by.
I found this image on the internet
I can assure you, I have never bitten a dog.
Never had one, seem like hard work
Phats (goldfish) STATUS: DEAD
Small (goldfish) STATUS: DEAD
Henrik Larsson (hamster) STATUS: DEAD
Pet History (Pistory)
Itsy and Bitsy (goldfish) STATUS: DEAD, buried in matchboxes in the back garden
Clover and Haystack (dutch rabbits) STATUS: DEAD, buried in shoeboxes in the back garden
And that’s it. I’d like a cat, or a dog, but it’s just too much of a tie for us.
Assorted geese, chickens and ducks
Gordon, Guinea pig
Squeak, Guinea pig
Alan, Guinea pig
All dead except for Oscar who I lost in a breakup and Cleo who is my current cat.
I have a squirrel that comes into the house that I feed but otherwise no, technically not allowed one but I reckon if we pushed for it with the landlord we could. At the same time I’m not around a lot and it wouldn’t be fair on a cat and certainly not a dog if I’m away often.
Had cats mainly growing up, love em. In an ideal world if I had all the time in the world and a massive house and garden I’d get a load of huskies
Un-named goldfish - dead
Meow (cat) - dead
Archie (dog) - dead
Napoleon (hamster) - dead
Gandi (cat) - dead
Alfie (dog) - rehomed but probably still alive
Bones (cat) - live and kicking, baby
I have a dog called Ozzie.
Millie and Billy - a pair of blue budgies
An undetermined number of tropical fish
I have two cats: Audrey and Norma. They are dickheads but I love them like they are my daughters.
I don’t want to read about dead pets :’(
This is what I’m looking at right now…
One pet currently sleeping on the eldests homework, one pet currently hibernating.
Pets that have sadly passed: my beautiful cat, my darling fish (including my son, blackie, who was born in the tank and survived getting eaten and lived 4 years till the tank broke) and my lovely crab
Pets still around: my sons
You mean this cheeky bugger?
Yes! This is Pipkin, who turns 1 next week
- Bruno (Dog, German Shepard)
- Gizmo (Cat)
- Millie (Dog)
- Candy (Dog)
All above have passed.
My 2 big teddy bears currently having their post breakfast.
This is Val, he is a monster and I love him.
First pet: Scooby. She was a babe. Labs
Next pet: Joe. Very naughty, had been a street dog in Liverpool. Full of sass. Loved an earl grey.
Troel and Theis: ultimate babes, the best pets ever.
Ukko and Torben: great bunch of rats
Fish: Pants, Mandy, Judy, Beadybee. All shit.
Mouse and Cow: poor man rats but cute little guys
Current: Fig. The most annoying cat thay ever existed. Awful. Makes me life very hard. Admirable really.
Used to. This handsome lad, Skip. He was a very good boy.
